Alfred Music Releases New Shred Guitar Book
Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, releases Shredding the Composers, a collection of classical pieces from 8 of the world's greatest classical composers taught through a heavy metal perspective in both standard notation and TAB, produced in partnership with the National Guitar Workshop. From the renowned shred guitarist German Schauss, Shredding the Composers features 10 intermediate to advanced level classical pieces and lessons in shred technique using some of the most brilliant and virtuosic music of all time. The pieces feature music written during the baroque, classical, and romantic periods from composers like Bach, Beethoven, Handel, Vivaldi, Mozart, Chopin, and more. Perfect for shredders of any era, the works included take on a whole new life when adapted for heavy metal guitar and provide theoretical analysis to help guitarists apply the techniques to their own compositions and soloing. Every piece is accompanied by a musical analysis to further enhance innovative techniques and ideas to stretch guitar playing to new limits. The accompanying CD features all of the examples, along with backing tracks at different tempos to help you practice and get you on your way to mastering this challenging repertoire. A notation key is also included for a quick reference on musical terms and markings. German Schauss is a guitarist, composer, author, and educator who teaches at Berklee College of Music and the Los Angeles Music Academy. He performs and tours as the leader of his own band and with other internationally known artists. German writes music for commercials, TV, and video games, and has been named one of the 50 fastest guitarists of all time by Guitar World magazine. The National Guitar Workshop is dedicated to bringing the best in music education to guitarists, bassists, keyboardists, drummers, and vocalists regardless of style of music or level of ability.
